Punk-kin Pasta from La Dolce Vegan has become a regular meal in our house, though it takes different variations every time. This time we used rocket (arugula) instead of sausage. And we had it alongside a big old salad full of rocket, three kinds of sprouts, tomato, capsicum, sautéed mushrooms, corn, and avocado dressing.
This is a bad photo of a really good dinner. I made the Classic Broccoli Quiche from the PPK blog. I doubled the recipe, so I had one quiche to bring to an AR meeting/vegan picnic, but I wanted to make sure it worked before bringing it out in public—it worked, quite well. This quiche is really yum, and I highly recommend trying it out. To go with it, Andy made a veggie sauté with potato, eggplant and spinach, which was really good as well.
One night I had to stay at uni until late to help out a friend who was doing a phone interview on ABC Radio National. When I got home, I found an over-stuffed but delicious pizza waiting for me, courtesy of Andy. This was chock full of seitan, pineapple, tomato, capsicum, nutritional yeast and bbq sauce.
This was an odd pairing, but somehow it work. Macaroni and Peas with nut yeast sauce on one side. On the other, veggies sautéed in spicy peanut sauce. They were brought together with some super-good garlic bread.
Inspired by all of the Daring Bakers with their Danish Braids, I made a curried lentil braid, using frozen puff pastry. This was really tasty, although my braid was definitely not as pretty as the ones I saw.
Early next week I'm going out bush for a cultural festival and to take part in an Aboriginal smoking/cleansing ceremony, so you won't be hearing from me for a few days!
